We have the 25 Best Restaurants list, and we asked you to dish out feedback on the top eats in Indy. Forty of you tried your hand at writing a tweet-sized (140-character) "essay" about the Best Restaurant that you love the most—or even one that didn't quite make the cut in IM's May 2013 issue. Your funny, pithy, or just plain impassioned words made us smile, chuckle, and even crave certain dishes. Thanks for tweeting us at @IndyMonthly and using the hashtag #IndyBestRests. All of your mini-essays now live on our website. (See the link below.)
A panel of IM staffers—editors, designers, and digital specialists—chose the "best" essay based on persuasive language and wit. The names of the grand-prize winner and first and second runners-up appear below, and have also been announced across our social media channels:
Grand Prize Winner:
Late Harvest [Kitchen]. The pork belly is so good, Rabbis will give you a pass.—Mark Beecher (wins $200 to St. Elmo)
@IndyMonthly I love @ZestIndy! Their meatloaf is better than mom's! Just don't tell my mom I said that fact. #IndyBestRests—@funangela (wins $50 to Ocean Prime)
